. president clinton massed nafta, the free trade agreement in 1993. the majority of republican votes for it and democrats against it. it's only 20 votes, but that is the difference between boehner getting what he wants and not. if he loses, he can only lose fewer than that in january. he needs a bill that commands a lot of democratic support. >> people say it will be one of the most powerful people. it will be more powerful because she has the upper hand and she knows it. she will have to deal with it at least 75 to 100 votes. >> and again the marks sustain this idea of okay, this new more moderate congress coming in and these voices will be put down to a degree or will we see dire financial implications off the bat? >> the lesser because even if they managed to harsh out the small deal that president obama is putting forward, this is deficit increase that we are talking about. none of these cuts will be offset. all of the spending will have to be accounted for somehow. the stage is set for an ugly plan. >> only in america! trivia time. we ask before bernie sanders, who is the last self-ide

clinton after his re-election in 1996. >> in modern times, second terms for presidents have been either disappointing or disastrous. i wonder if you have drawn any lessons on why that is so. >> the things which derail a second term are basically three. one is some external event intervenes and the president can't fulfill his dreams or hopes for his agenda. sometimes a president thinks he has more of a mandate than he does and tries to do too much. and the third is that sometimes a president essentially just runs out of steam. >> in a november of 1972 after two weeks of reflection at camp david, president richard nixon told reporters, my study of elections in this country is that second terms almost inevitably are downhill. yes, richard nixon said that in '72. after a string of legislative successes in his first term and after narrowly winning a second term as president, president bush claimed a mandate. >> when you win, there is a feeling that the people have spoken and embraced your point of view. and that's what i intend to tell the congress. i earned capital in the campaign, politica

hillary clinton was set to return to work, she suddenly is hospitalized for a blood clot stemming from that concussion she sustained recently. >>> and in an nbc news exclusive, president obama lays out his second-term priorities, and guns didn't make the list. >>> plus, is there new hope for chuck hagel? the president defends his possible defense secretary pick. >>> good morning from washington. it's the last day of the year, december 31st, 2012, and this is "the daily rundown." i'm chris cillizza in for chuck todd. with sweeping tax increases and across-the-board spending cuts set to take effect at midnight, even lawmakers are now publicly pessimistic about the ability of congress to, well, get anything done. at best, democrats and republicans will patch together a limited, short-term deal to avoid the most immediate economic impacts of the fiscal cliff. with 15 hours to go and counting, members of congress are disgusted and embarrassed. >> when the future of the country, you know, rests in the hands of 70 and 80-year-olds who have jet lag, it's probably not the best thing. >> so

gears for a moment, following the news of hillary clinton's health, her being hospitalized for a blood clot and i know you followed her, reported on her for many years and wondering if you have any particular insights in to her current situation. >> in to her medical state, i have absolutely no insights. but i do know she's a very tough person, hard worker and i suspect that considering who she is and the doctors that have been treating her and her husband for years now, she'll probably be okay. you know, you know, don't ask me to offer diagnosis. but i suspect that if it's not some sort of stroke or something, she will be out there again and we'll hear from her. >> all right. michael, thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. >>> my name might be krystal ball but s.e. saw something that the rest of us didn't since she is not here today. we have the winners and the losers of this fiscal fiesta. but really, are there any winners? >>> so all eyes are on washington where they're trying to make the last-minute deal. instead of watching the ball in times square. so we have to
